I would bypass the system. Google "grand am anti-theft bypass" I'm sure it would be similar to that. You can also try turning the ignition to on or run for 10 minutes and see if it goes out. But again for an old car like that, it is too expensive to fix and no offense but no one is going to steal a saturn.
Hood switch. remove the switch, let the wires hang, it will have no effect on the alarm
If you don't believe me go down to BMW have them hook up the computer for $105 to tell you which sensor it is. Every time the alarm goes off, there's a history in the computer via codes to say which sensor went off. Save yourself $105 remove the switch and set the alarm for a few days. If it doesn't go off....bingo that's it.
Oh btw, alarm systems are worthless. So the alarm goes off...then what? You going to shoot the guy, no you can't do that b/c you go to jail. Going to challenge the guy.....no...b/c then you get shot, I mean figure the auto thief is competent and brought a weapon. All you can do is jump up and down or pray, both effective against car thieves. Or pay a lot of money to keep you alarm in working order. Now that's stupid.
the manual says to put the key in the ignition, turn on all the way, but don't start the car and leave for 10 minutes until the theft light stops flashing. turn off all the way and star it up. good luck.
It helps to know what kind of car you have even the year makes a difference GM cars with the chip in the key have two small white wires coming off the lock cylinder that break. Then you need a lock cylinder rekeyed to your old key. The code is in the chip. Newer GM cars can go though a security reset that involves turning the key on for 5 minuetes or more after a try to crank and the light goes out then turn the key off wait a second or two and turn it back on, the light will come on , in about the same amount of time the light will go out and again turn the key off then back on light on wait again then this time when the light goes out turn it off then back on and start the car the light will come on and the cars running with out a security proble it'll go right back out . This will happen if the car doesnt reconize the key and repeated attemps are made to start the car with the wrong key that just happens to turn the lock. As you found out if you try it enought with the right key it'll start and the light will stay on
Yeah, put the first key in and let the anti-theft light go completly out (about ten secs), take that key out and do the same with the second key. Take it out and start it with the first key. Maybe this will trick the system , hope this helps.
OPEN THE DOORS AND BOOT LID AND TURN ON THE IGNITION THEN YOU DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FOR 11 MIN AND RECONNECT ON THE OBC A TIMER WILL START WITH THE ALARM SOUND AT THIS TIME DO NOT DO ANY TIME OR OPEN OR CLOSE ANY DOORS.WHEN THE TIMER HAS COMPLETED 15 MIN IS THENORM THEN ONLY DO YOU STAR UP BUT DO NOT TURN THE KEY BACK WHEN STARTING THIS WILL JUST RESET EVERYTHING.
